Koinonia-Please Vote!

Important discussions regarding whether or not HAUMC should sell Koinonia Retreat Center were held on April 28 and May 5. There were many compelling discussion points on both sides of this question. 

On Sunday, June 2, we will vote on this important decision. Please plan to attend the Church Conference at 11:30am in the Sanctuary. Child care will be provided. (Only HAUMC members are allowed to vote.)

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact John Roberts

Help us dust, polish, mulch, plant, pick -up, sweep  and more to get cleaned up after our hard winter. There will be activities for all ages making it a great opportunity for the whole family to volunteer together. Come for any part of the morning.  Sign-ups are really helpful, but you can always just show up.  RSV P  at
or find us in  Carlson Hall on Sundays to learn more.   
Missa Gaia/Earth Mass

We invite all families to enjoy Traditional Worship together on Sunday, June 2nd. As part of our Green Faith sermon series, our Hennepin musicians will present "Earth Mass." Earth Mass is an engaging,  musical celebration of Mother Earth, weaving together voices from all of God's creation. Featuring local legend Thomasina Petrus and puppets from The Heart of the Beast Puppet Theater, with jazz and global musicians, Sanctuary Choir, and more! There will be nursery care and preschool Sunday School only for this special worship event.
Clothing Needed!

Spring really is coming!  Your generous donations to our refugee family at Christmas time helped them make it through their first Minnesota winter.  As the season changes, they are in need of spring and summer clothing.  Specific sizes needed are:  women's size 14 for mother, men's size small for teenage boy, women's size 10 for teenage girl, boy's size 12, girl's size 8-10, and boy's size 5. 

It has been exciting to have this family join our Hennepin Kids on Sunday mornings.  Other ways that we can extend our radical hospitality to this family is by providing transportation to church on Sunday mornings and joining them during brunch.  If you live in St. Paul and are able to help drive them to church on a Sunday morning, please contact Ann Carlson at

10am - 3pm at HAUMC
